Feast of Forgiveness

Porciúncula also refers to the plenary indulgence that used to be given to those who visited this sanctuary on August 2, the date set by Pope Honorius III in 1221. Although in the beginning the indulgence could only be gained in the Porciúncula, the privilege was eventually extended to all churches having a connection with the Franciscan order. More...

FORGIVENESS IS 'DIRECT ROUTE' TO HEAVEN, SAYS POPE FRANCIS ON ASSISI PILGRIMAGE



The Pope was in Umbria for the 800th anniversary of the Franciscan feast of the Pardon of Assisi

Pope Francis has visited Assisi, central Italy, to mark the 800th anniversary of the Franciscan feast of the Pardon of Assisi.

Francis marked the feast with a pilgrimage to the Porziuncula chapel in Assisi’s Basilica of Mary of the Angels, where the feast originated. After praying silently in the chapel, Francis moved into the main basilica to offer a reflection on Matthew 18.21-35. In this Gospel passage, Christ tells Peter to forgive his brother “not seven times, but seventy times seven”, before telling the parable of the servant who was forgiven his debt, but refused to forgive his own debtor.

Pope Francis began his reflection by echoing the words St Francis is believed to have said in the same basilica: “I want to send you all to Heaven!”

He said that “forgiveness” is “our direct route” to Heaven – being forgiven by God and in turn forgiving others. He compared the indebted servant in the story to a penitent coming to confession, asking that his Master have patience with him.

“When we are indebted to others, we expect mercy,” he said, “but when others are indebted to us, we demand justice! This is a reaction unworthy of Christ’s disciples… who have obtained mercy at the foot of the cross solely by virtue of the love of the Son of God.”
